Liner Notes: 

Just getting on the board with the lyrics only on this one. I envision a heavy metal, threatening tone for this one. I have a bit of a melody in mind that works with the meter, though it doesn't scan as smoothly as it could.
I don't play heavy metal, but that's about the only way I hear this one. Have at it if it interests you.

Lyrics: 

The lies you tell pile up by the thousands
But they can’t hold up when truth comes and surrounds them
You try to make your lies the law
They’re all right there on film, we know what we saw
You try to set your rules in stone
But the storm is coming …
And we’ll take back what we own

And you’ll be standing all alone
When the storm comes
Hey-yey … when the storm comes

The forecast is showing that your day will soon be done
You’ll have nowhere safe to hide when the storm has finally come
You tried to make yourself a king
But like it did before, sweet freedom will ring
You tried to have it all your way
But justice will be served …
When we rise up and have our say

And you’ll be standing all alone
When the storm comes
Hey-yey … when the storm comes

Yeah, you’ll be standing all alone
When the storm comes
Hey-yey … when the storm comes

Let it rock! Yes, lots of energy and anger demanding a hard rock/metal tone to the music. Great skirmishing!

yes certainly rock - bit wordy for really heavy - but wordy is its strength as a good lyric. Nice skirmish

great idea, and really well done lyric! I'm (of course) imagining who in our current era this might fit (bet you can guess) tho I like very much how you made this a more general thing without tying it down to a specific person/time, etc. and it could work musically in alot of different styles, sinister and foreboding doesn't have to be heavy metal, for example.

great work!
